Wordle #120 – Present, Past, Future

image

Oh, how formidable is youth?

Shining.

Glistening.

Almost cinematic they spiral,
From the navel out.

Forever drifting.

So,
Patiently they wait,
Sehnsucht, and
Choose to step beyond the codex of before.

To feint and change the course.

History must stay in the past,
But the future?
That is ours.

Photo Challenge #73 – Lone Mist

– Natalia Drepina

Misty mornings
She walks alone

Spindly branches sway
Lazily in the breeze
Like fingers
They brush against her

Leaving early tears
To sparkle
Rolling down
The slope of her neck

Bare feet crunch
Now broken twigs
To quell the silence
And start the morning birds cry

Wordle #70 – Whispers

week-70

A tinnitus of harsh remarks.

With the power of a leviathan.
They’re as lethal as a spear.

They will hiss.
They will spit.
They will spray.

So in this way
They coagulate the mind
dogged frequency.

Flattening the spirit.
In a radial loop.

Inescapable.

Heeding Haiku with HA – Piercing Scream

The Scream by Edvard Munch

 

Skin deep, not enough,
Not even the soul would do.
That unearthly sound,
Through my layered walls it dug,
Until it’d carved me out.

Another awesome prompt from Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie, this time to write a haiku or tanka inspired by the painting The Scream by Edvard Munch.
